NV East on I-80

Currently headed to east coast on I-80 in a big rig. Any advice, suggestions re: Salt Lake City? Go north and around via I-84 or south loop and stay on I-80?

Doesn't make much difference. You've got to climb the mountains either way.

there are only two climbs on I-80 eastbound ... 1) between Salt Lake City and Park City, UT and 2) just east of Laramie, WY

taking I-84 eliminates the first one.

I-80 across Wyoming is easy ... if you want to a good meal in the middle of nowhere ... stop at Little America, WY ... you won't regret it ... plenty of parking for big rigs

Being 4 days ago, I might be too late on this...but it doesn't make much sense to me if coming in from NV to go about 40 miles north to hit 84 and then another 40 miles south to pickup 80 again. Probably just take 80 to 15, then south to where 80 heads east again. The Park City climb isn't too bad, just did it about 4 months ago.
